Apocalypse now

A Tale of Two Speeches

It was the worst of speeches, it was the best of speeches. It was a speech of foolishness, it was a speech of wisdom. It was a speech of incredulity, it was a speech of belief. It was a speech of darkness, it was a speech of light. It was a speech of rage and […]

So, if it’s safe now, it was safe then? Ya don’t say!

My wife and I had COVID-19 in the last half of December last year. My relatively mild case — hers was worse — was mitigated by “prohibited” medicines and “questionable” treatments that the thoroughly corrupt medical establishment in our country demonized, along with those of us who wanted to choose our personal course of action.

1984 – Compulsory Language

Decades ago, when the first rumblings of the need for gay marriage to be legalized came about, I was grappling with the issue. At first I was okay with the idea. I understood that for a member of a gay couple it would be easier if he was married and a hospital has visiting restricted […]

Propaganda vs. Reality

One man’s reality is another’s propaganda and vice versa. Many decades ago, there was a marvelous series on TV where Benjamin Dunlap, a movie lover and intellect, wanted to pass on his own experience. He had watched certain films over and over, and saw details that would escape those who only watched those films once. […]

Roe is Overturned And the Left Thinks It’s the end of the World

In the past I have written about how one argues with a liberal. The liberal says, “Well, what about this?” You answer factually. You get, “I don’t want to talk about it” — ignoring the fact that he was the one who brought it up. Or, “Where did you hear that? I never heard that” […]

The January Sixth Committee

I did not watch all of the hearings. But I did see a lot of them and saw many of what those on the Committee would consider the “highlights”. First some observations: Not once has the Committee played the part of Trump’s comments to his supporters that we will now march to the Capitol to […]

A letter to Senator Ben Sasse

Dear Senator Sasse, As you can see I am not one of your Nebraska constituents. I am one of your American constituents. I don’t have any understanding of what you are on about when you speak of Trump and your problems with him or our “hero” worship of him. Do the country a favor, please […]

An Inside Out, Upside Down World

With Mother’s Day upon us there is the irony that a lot of ANTI mother effort exists these days. School boards impede or deny mothers the right to speak up against schools polluting their children’s minds. Pro abortionists do all they can to prevent motherhood even to happen in too many instances. We are informed […]

“News” Reporting

Here is how the left wing news reports a story. “Retired conservative federal judge says Republican efforts to overturn the 2020 election were a dry run for 2024.” I call that “news” story chutzpah, inc. Here is how I would report the same story. The headline would be: “The Democrats may steal the election again […]

A review of the Frontline on PBS from Tuesday night, April 12th

I only saw the program once and it is possible I misconstrued some things and forgot others. If I got some things really wrong, let me know. But here is my summary of this outrageous edition of Frontline: It said it was going to be about Ukraine, so even though I gave up on Frontline […]
